For Valentine's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of an office makeover. I wanted a space that was girly, fun, full of sparkle, with a sprinkling of joy. I gave myself permission to deeply love where I spend a lot of my time.
Whether you’re in a romantic relationship or not, you can always celebrate Valentine’s Day, simply by loving yourself.
According to best-selling author and counsellor Louise Hay:
“It’s not selfish to love ourselves. When I talk about loving ourselves, I mean having a deep appreciation for who we are. We accept all the different parts of ourselves—our little peculiarities, the embarrassments, the things we may not do so well, and all the wonderful qualities, too.”
As women, we often give too much of ourselves to others. We love everyone else unconditionally, but not ourselves. This Valentine’s Day, why not give yourself just a little bit more lovin' than usual?
So, whether you are single or committed, you can share in this day of love either way!
Looking for a little indulgence? Well then, we’ve got you covered there too. Here are our Valentine’s Day must-haves for a love and glamour-filled day.
Climbing into bed and putting on your favorite chick flick never felt so good! Silk pajamas are a special touch to any day, especially your Valentine’s Day. They’re surely an item you’ve been meaning to purchase for a while, right?
When was the last time you celebrated with a glass of champagne? Here at Girl Two Doors Down headquarters, we buy champagne by the case!!! If you’re wondering what you’re celebrating exactly, you’re celebrating you on the most appropriate day of the year (next to your birthday of course). Call your favourite gal pals over and start clinking glasses. Cheers!
Chocolate mousse, macarons, pineapple upside down cake, or a donut: no need to nibble on cinnamon hearts and chocolate truffles if they’re not your favorite. Leverage Valentine’s Day to get your deserving paws on your very favorite dessert, regardless of what it may be. Whipped cream or ice cream on the side? Well, of course.
There’s literally no better time to treat yourself to that massage, manicure, or facial you’ve been lusting over for months. Express your love for yourself with a relaxing trip to your spa and leave feeling better than you have in a long time! Plus, most spas run Valentine’s Day promotions you can easily take advantage of. Ready, set, reeeelax!
Get yourself to and fro’ the hot tub or sauna in style with your very own pair of designer flip flops. Worn by Hollywood’s hottest celebrities, this is affordable glamour that won’t break the bank.
We hope you find a special way to love yourself (extra!) this Valentine’s Day, and make it the best ‘day of love’ you’ve yet to experience. xoxo
